Cool Typography with the Blend Tool in Illustrator I have written some Illustrator tutorials in which I've used the Blend Tool to create swirls and other shapes, but I have never used it to create a text effect.

Is it possible to select multiple layers by sel... And I guess it's the way I work. I routinely select objects by selecting them from the layers palette, and not the canvas, so that I can't accidentally move an object that is the clients artwork. I prefer to work this way, as I consider it "safer". (I lock layers I'm not using) I routinely run into artists work that for instance, converted fonts to outline, and now each compound layer that is an individual letter is an object on it's own layer. I need things grouped together and titled so that if I need to come back to this file and quickly fix something on press, I can tell what layer holds what object.

First we start by creating a New document (Cmd + N), the size of the artboard will be 600 x 1000 px. In the Layers panel, create four new layers: the bottom layer "Sketch" is where we are going to draw our sketch, the layer "Lines" we draw our base lines, in the layer "Shapes" is for some black figures that we need to do and finally in the layer "Details" its where all tiny details and magic is going to happen. With the Blob Brush Tool (Shift + B) we start to draw half of our deer. You can use a picture as a reference or simply get inspired, personally I don't do my sketches clean I use the sketch just as a base for my final illustration so in the process I can add or remove details. Now select your sketch and set the Opacity to 50%.
